A Mission Minute
(Copy & Paste ready)
You may have heard about our (Church/School)’s partnership with Samaritan Ministry of Greater Washington, especially as this year’s Empower our Neighbors in Need campaign kicks off. Empowerment comes in many forms- from helping participants find housing, to finding an outfit for a job interview, and so much more. Samaritan Ministry’s many programs support participants as they work towards their goals, and caseworkers stay in touch with them even after those goals have been met. As STRIVE graduate and Next Step Program participant Charles Hopkins puts it, “If you accept the coaching and take STRIVE training, you’ll get what you need to accomplish your goals.”
Even in these uncertain times, Samaritan Ministry’s mission continues. Participants have found Jobs and housing during the pandemic, and SMGW has been able to provide more food through fresh grocery giveaways and even a BBQ essentials giveaway in preparation for Memorial day. It’s been over a year of pivots and change, but as the world begins to reopen, so do Samaritan Ministry’s offices. There will be plenty of opportunities to give your time, talent, and/or treasure to keep our partnership strong, so stay tuned and be sure to follow Samaritan Ministry on social media for more updates!
